    I love these shots - I'm a country boy at heart. Photos like this have a very peaceful and relaxing feel. :2thumbs:

    These are all quite lovely, well composed and the slight over-saturation works well to make the point except in the last where the magenta tint looks a bit heavy to me.

    Caimi -Wonderful shots. Five years ago, before I had to drive 45 minutes in the country to get to work, I could never have appreciated them. Now every day I wish I had an opportunity to shoot such things. Last week I drove past your third shot on the way to work, as it glowed in the sunlight. Sadly US 231 is a narrow 2 lane with a 4' deep ditch on either side rather than anything resembling a shoulder. Trying to stop would be suicidal.

    Thanks for your great aesthetic, and for posting the shots too hazardous for me to attempt.

    Lovely shots! I especially love the first shot. I agree with Lew though, that the magenta tint is a bit too much for my taste in most of the shots...

    Is it possible the magenta cast is somehow being added in the upload process? The final processed image I have of trout camp road (the last picture) in LR4 does not have it. Colors are natural.

    Slim chance.. maybe you need monitor calibration ?
    Also the HDR is quite evident in last picture

    Hanzo, would my need for monitor calibration account for a more natural image on my screen and a less natural one here?

    There is a magenta tone both monitors, but I found it rather natural given the time of day. Doesn't bother me.

    Okay, so maybe I need monitor calibration. Something I've avoided as much as slamming my head in a door.

    Caimi. I don't see the need, nor do I recommend you do it. Actual either, though the latter may provide you with a new perspective in viewing.

    Dome,

    Thank you, I will avoid calibrating my monitor and slamming my head in a door for another day.

    If you only view your images from the monitor. I don't see the need to. Although calibrating is not that difficult.. nor expensive..
    Me.. I occasionally print my pictures, and need color accuracy to avoid wasting expensive inks and papers.

    This is true only if you never send images anywhere else.
    If your monitor(s) are uncalibrated than you have no idea how your images will appear to others.

    I also print from time to time and the printer accurately reflects what I see on the monitor.And generally, the images I send from my system when viewed on other monitors looks like what I am seeing on my monitor (as far as my memory allows since the monitors are not side by side). I actually have calibrated it a few times in the past and it is a task I do not enjoy.

    Actually there are other possibilities..one that I can think of is browser colorspace issues.

    I certainly could. I'm seeing the magenta cast in the last one too. It jumped out at me because other than that I like the series a lot. Good work.
